Tested on the Novell Netware platform with a Windows XP client, NOD32 outperformed competitors several times over. ESET NOD32 Antivirus achieved the highest throughput of all vendors on the standardized test, at 8.36 MB/sec for executable files. This was nearly six times faster than McAfee's NetShield antivirus which scanned at 1.4 MB/sec. Similarly, NOD32 is four times faster than Kaspersky antivirus (2 MB/sec). "ESET is focused on providing effective malware protection and meeting customer demands for unobtrusive and cost-effective protection--even for older legacy environments," said Rick Moy, vice president of marketing for ESET. "Our successful track record with Virus Bulletin and the achievement of an unprecedented number of 100% awards is validation of our technical team and the technology." NOD32 is the only solution worldwide that has not missed a single "In the Wild" worm or virus in the rigorous testing conducted by Virus Bulletin since May 1998. The recent comparative tests also claimed that NOD32 outperforms 8 other antivirus products.
